We’re not quite sure where Mercedes fits in all this but the all new Infiniti G-series Saloon will be powered by a selection of four-potter petrol and diesel engines developed by Mercedes for contract hire with bad credit customers. Perhaps with a German made engine, Nissan’s luxury arm is able to compete with the BMW 3-series and the new Audi A3 that is set to launch in 2015?
Currently, what powers the G-series saloon and its coupe and cabriolet equivalents is a 3.7-liter petrol V6 engine with a penchant for consuming ridiculous amounts of fuel. Due to this, sales of the G-series have been pretty lackluster in Europe considering it is a market run by four-cylinder diesel engines.
Tony Lewis, the regional director for Infiniti in Nothern Europe, is adamant that they will get the car right from the very beginning. Do it once, do it right, they say.
The G-series will also celebrate Infiniti’s new design language like we have seen on the much talked about Emerg-E concept previewed not too long ago.
Infiniti also has bold plans. In 2011, they sold 145,000 units. Not satisfied with that number, they are aiming to move 500,000 units in 2016. Things in UK didn’t go to well in 2011 though, with Infiniti only selling 500 units. However, Infiniti hopes that 20,000 units of the new G-series will be sold by 2016.
The G-series will previewed in the form of an Infiniti Etherea concept dating back to 2011 at the Geneva Motor Show. The car will be based on the Daimler MFA platform which also forms the base for the A-class and B-class Mercedes.
In an effort to increase sales, Infiniti is planning on boosting the number of its European network of dealers to 230 by 2016. Currently, the number sits at 55. By March 2013, Infiniti would already have 35 of them planned out.
The G-series will be launched in 2013 so for Contract hire with bad credit information please get in touch with one of MSG Cars consultants today for an instant decision no matter what your credit level
